    Letters

    Those letters that I get are what makes my day so much better. Every time he writes me a letter I get butterflies and just can't wait till I get to see him again. Every letter I receive he says how much he misses me and that he loves me.

    Marine Children

    Does anyone else have small children? My son is four and he's doing okay with daddy being away but sometimes it's just hard for him. He has his days. Is there any advice you could give me? We are doing so much to count the days.
